The Long and the Short of It

The long story bores some
While it may intrigue one
But most prefer the short
For then they can retort

With their limited guise
Without intact surmise
Ending the connection
Of a short protraction

Which'd started evenly
Before it was unseemly
Then ... reprimanded ...
And an end - demanded

- Tristram
